The Electronics and Electrical Communications Engineering Department had the pleasure to welcome Dr. Khaled EL-MAHGOUB - one of its 2001 alumni - and currently a Senior Validation Engineer @ ThingMagic (Trimble Navigation) and a Research Affiliate with Auto-ID Labs, Massachusetts Institute of Technologya (USA). Dr. EL-MAHGOUB delivered a talk at the EECE Department in the Hammam Lecture Hall, which was attended by many EECE Staff and students. It was followed by a Q&A session which helped illustrate some of the new trends in the RFID Systems and is applications. Following is a short description of the talk and a brief biography for the speaker. A copy of the presentation can be downloaded.

 

Title: 
The Role of RFID in IoT

 

Abstract :

Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) is a technology which uses RF signals for automatic identification of objects. RFID is used for many applications in various areas such as electronic toll collection, asset identification, retail item management and many others. RFID-enabled organizations can achieve numerous strategic and economic benefits such as: collecting accurate information about anything efficiently, automating common business processes, reducing inventory loss, improving productivity, as well as increasing data security and integrity. 



In this presentation a description about different RFID technologies in today's market will be provided. In addition, in the presentation I will try to briefly describe the role of RFID in the advancements of the Internet of Things (IoT), and explore the future approaches for possible usage of RFID in IoT systems. Moreover, a brief description about different technologies that could be used as an identification and sensing tools will be provided.
